Cascadia Biological Services was retained by Teal Cedar Products Ltd. to begin an intensive effectiveness monitoring assessment of the 17km spawning and rearing channel. The assessment is part of the Forest Investment Account Restoration Program for rehabilitation of fisheries habitat in the watershed. A key purpose of this project was to monitor the effectiveness of instream work completed in 2000, which focused primarily on the creation of Coho salmon rearing and spawning habitat. The assessment began an enumeration program to assess emigrating Coho smolts out of the channel, acquired 2001 Coho emigration date and established photo point monitoring locations and began photodocumentation of changes to fish habitat. With an overall increase of approximately 1986 emigrating individuals, the 17km spawning/rearing channel has proven to be an overwhelming success.
